Nina Borowsky: ‘Girls and Dolls’ (Isolation)

Nina Borowsky: ‘Girls and Dolls’ (Isolation)

MonoVisions Black & White Photo Contest 2021

We find ourselves – as a global community – in a challenging and unprecedented situation. Faced with such unknowns, it is entirely natural to feel anxious or destabilised.

My images was taking in Hampshire for the project ‘Girls and Dolls”(Isolation)

Loneliness it’s an epidemic in our time but different kind. Many of us lacking of the social connections. In this testing times my thoughts with the older generations who are especially vulnerable to social isolation and loneliness.

When taking a deeper look into how the elderly cope alone, I find that some gain solace in their childhood companions, these dolls once used to represent fun, joy and laughter.

Rare visits by their family members, have detrimental effects on both mental and physical health. An ever-growing older population living alone, count television as their main companion.

There needs to be a change in our society of how we perceive and take care of our elderly and vulnerable.
